was ready to try again to do something big to control the debt. the ensuing days, the two sides forged common ground on the strategy raising the debt limit and cutting more than $4 trillion out of the federal budget that would take place through 2021. the speaker put out a statement in connection with the comments he made to the press yesterday. here is a bit of it for you. he said: in the end, he writes, we couldn't connect. not because of different importants, but different visions for our country. the president is emphatic taxes have to be raised. i know that tax increases destroy jobs. the next page, mr. boehner goes on to say, the president is adamant we can't make changes to entitlement program. i know the programs won't be there for my daughter's generation unless significant action is taken now. i have decided to end conversations with the white house and begin conversations with the leaders in the senate in an effort to find a path forward. again, the leaders are going to the white house today to meet with the president. the minority leader also putting out a statement becaus
social security, you don't get a penny of it. every penny of that goes into the big pot and it's distributed to everyone else. anybody who dies to young, all of their money has been wasted. it is just going into the government pot. the second thing you have to know, is if you save up to much, when you start receiving it, you get taxed on it again. if you get taxed on social security when you are your money what you are working and then after you start receiving it, if you save up to much because you were worried about it, you get taxed on it again. it gets added to whatever income you have from your savings. host: do you think private savings accounts, that your social security should be yours when you pay in, you should be booked to get or keep or transfer? caller: i certainly do. that is why i voted for president bush to the second time around. i did not agree with him for very much but i agree with him on that point. people should have their names on their accounts and what ever they put into it should belong to them. so even if they die when their 50, that money goes to the
, pennsylvania, south carolina, utah, and i'm leaving now north carolina and illinois because those are the big jackpot states that are really thriving each party's potential for gain. i have a question mark as to which would gain or lose. states like iowa, new jersey, and arizona. i am sure the five states we will talk a lot about this morning are illinois, north carolina, which are both party opportunity for partisan capitalization on this redistricting. illinois for democrats, picking up potential five or six seats. or four or five seats, republicans losing them. north carolina, republican gains and possibly three seats, depending on the legal challenge to the map the republicans are proposing. and in california, where i think democrats at the end of the table probably pick up two or three seats as the result of the untangling of california's and competitive lines at the moment texas, where i expected to either be a draw or republicans netting two seats depending on the legal challenges we will be talking about. the wild card is florida. i am sure we will make that a big part of our discussi
to start paying off the debt and cleaning up the mess that president obama and big spenders of both parties have given us in the past. we need to lower the debt ceiling. so that this never happens again. we can leave a better america for our children and grandchildren. after watching president obama's address the other night, it was pretty clear to me that he was making a campaign speech. he wants to raise taxes on job creators and small businesses. it would not go into effect until after reelection. he is promising trillions of dollars of future cuts but you and i know will never materialize. kind of reminds me of the cartoon character wimpy. i will pay you tomorrow for a hamburger today. i don't want to give him the hamburger. i would like to tell the president, the american people are smarter than this ponzi scheme he is trying to get us. we are not going to buy into it, are we? we need immediate and hefty spending cuts. we need to pay down our national debt. we need to do with a business does leggett overextended. it lowers the borrowing limit and find a way to pay off the debt. cut exp
. it is a mixture of big and small airports that go into the best practices in terms of what's appropriate for each airport. >> i have a lot of precedent in a limited amount of time. you're talking about baggage screening equipment. the airport i use the most is in corpus christi. we have american and continental, three regional jets, southwest with 737's. each airline has a screening machines staffed by two tsa agents. we bought three machines for the corpus christi airport. probably a fourth one, because delta used to be there. why could there not be just one? there are never that many people there. do we have any idea why we are spending multiple -- thata has a program they're trying to move toward, optimal solutions for each airport. they are trying to remove the stand-alone machines and use more efficient systems or even so-called in-line systems, which require less personnel to operate. i am not sure if that particular airport is on track to get that system. >> one of the things i hear consistently from my constituents -- try saying that three times fast -- is why don't we faller -- follow mo
airports as small as asheville, from the airport such as delta county, minot. so it's a mixture of big airports and small airport that have gotten into best practices in terms of what are the kinds of things appropriate for each airport. >> again, let me go on to mr. lord. i have a lot of questions in a limited amount of time. you're talking about spending on, for instance, baggage screening equipment. i'll speak from experience the airport i use most is the corpus christi airport. we have three airlines, american, continental with small regional jets and southwest with 737's. each individual airline has a screening machine staffed by two t.s.a. agents. we bought three machines for the corpus christi airport. and there's probably a fourth one because delta used to come in there. why couldn't there just be one and a couple of t.s.a. agents? there are never that many people there. why are -- do we have any clue why we're spending multiple -- >> that's a great question. t.s.a. has an electronic baggage screening program which they're trying to move to what they term optimal solutions for
